I was wondering how Apple could possibly have missed such an obvious thing. All of these answers miss the mark by a bit. Turns out there's a super straightforward answer. System Preferences -> Sound -> Output tab -> Select a device for sound output -> switch it to Airport Express (presuming you're connected to your Airport Express). Now the whole system ...

There are two ways of having backups encrypted. First, Time Capsule allows for you to encrypt the disk. If you enable this, the disk can only be mounted by the device if you provide it with the password to do so. This encryption is local and thus doesn't address your concern. It does mean that if the disk somehow gets taken out of the TC, it can't be read. ...

Yes, you should be able to do all the things you asked, provided you have the correct apps on the iPad. It's easier to do these things if you keep your docs in iCloud instead of the network share, though. For instance, I have the MS Excel app and I store all my spreadsheets on a network share or on iCloud. I can do almost everything I need to do thru the ...

I don't know how well it will interface with your router, but if you have an Apple Airport router, it is decently easy to forward the DCHP requests to the server. Note that the version of OS X Server on ...

To get that working you have to be able to create an ad-hoc network with one of the two Wi-Fi interfaces. It works at least with Airport but only without any Wi-Fi security like WEP/WPA/WPA2. I don't have access to a RTL8188cus, so I don't know if its driver allows a "safer" wireless networking. Additionally you have to install a lightweight DNS/DHCP ...

First - download and read the setup guides for your Time Capsule. See help.apple.com for your location and your model of time capsule. You should aim to replace your current WiFi (from your modem) with a new WiFi network (from the Time Capsule). You can extend your modem's WiFi with your Time Capsule's WiFi but this is usually more complicated and will not ...

Although the GUI has lost a lot of functionality, there is a workaround. In AU, select the device and click 'edit'. Under the File menu export the config, which you can then edit, and import it using the same menu. The relevant tag is <key>ntSV</key> <string>time.apple.com</string> You will need to be very careful with your ...

This is a late comment, but if anyone happens upon this, the standard keyboard shortcuts are command + up arrow for increase volume and command + down arrow for decrease volume. To check, you can click on the controls menu tab when in iTunes and scroll down - you should see them there. Alternatively, you can set up your own shortcuts as Code Commander listed ...
